Notification system for OS X apps.

Growl is a notification system that allows any application to send it a notification, and then it displays it. You can (for example) be notified that you have new email, or that a download completed, etc.

Support for Applescript, Perl, Python, TCL, Cocoa, Carbon, Ruby and more being added.

Looks gorgeous with the iPhonesque theme.

Just got Growl along with Shimo, but now I can't get the extras b/c the site is down -- apparently it's been down a lot the last month or so :(

Note: example scripts are in the version .7.6 dmg, but not in the 1.1.2 dmg.
These scripts can be useful to monitor a folder, have a notification from Salling Clicker, etc.

The dog's boll*cks, the bee's knees, the cream of the crop. So useful it's hardly imaginable to live without. I love it. This + growlcamino = perfection.

The Growl project has hosting issues at the moment.

All links to Growl are returning 404's?

Love it, but I need real support - and not just a hack that works for some and not for others. One of the main draws for this application for me was mail notification, and without it, I just don't get the main function from Growl that I need.

Here's to hoping that it gets working soon.

Oh - and it doesn't help that the site is down. ___

Couldn't live without it. I have nearly every add-on imaginable for my programs. Now if only somebody would make an OmniWeb Growl plugin...

Simply fantastic, allows me to continue working and monitor my conversations with just a glance. Fine product, only needs to have access to more applications.
